Ralph is a rock star!!

Ralph is a rock star! Well, he rocks my world anyway.

He sang some Christmas songs in church last Sunday with the other children from 3 years - Kindergarten. As I walked up the stairs to the stage with him he grabbed a microphone with both hands like he knew exactly what he was doing. On the way to stand on the risers he spied a guitar and also a bass. It was all I could do to keep him in his spot on the back row and focused on the songs. He's really a natural performer.

Here Ralph is dancing along with the Wiggles.

Flying on mommy's feet.
Ralph is also winning the battle against pulmonary hypertension. He was such a big boy at his cardiology appointment this week. He let the nurse take his oxygen levels and he even let her get all the leads on for his EKG! Not too long ago it was a struggle to get him to be still enough to get good readings. He's really growing up!

He was also a good boy for his heart echo. His right heart size looks good. His implanted device looks good too. His pulmonary pressures were the lowest ever. Sooooooo....(drum roll please).....

We are officially weaning his pulmonary hypertension meds!!! I have waited for 3 1/2 years to say! It's very scary for me to think that in 10 weeks he will be completely off all of his medications. With everything that he has been through I'm just feeling so blessed that he's this healthy today.

Psalm 103:1-5

Praise the LORD, my soul;
all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
Praise the LORD, my soul,
and forget not all his benefits—
who forgives all your sins
and heals all your diseases,
who redeems your life from the pit
and crowns you with love and compassion,
who satisfies your desires with good things
so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.

Oh, you have blessed me today! Praise the Lord, giver of all good things, and who never leaves us or forsakes us.
